I'm a French university graduate, currently working for an insurance company in Paris. I love sports of many kinds (as long as it doesn't involve flying objects ^^), music (mostly classical and jazz, but anything goes as long as it's not techno) and above all, meeting people from different cultures.
I haven't traveled much the pas few years, first due to a lack of money, then a lack of free time but I intend to catch up on this. Most of my trips have been confined to Europe, with the exception a month in the USA (in a small town near Seattle) and two month in China (Beijing) when I was still in high school. You could say I never saw anything about those two countries, but it was really interesting, culturally speaking.
Whenever I travel, I do it cheap and "local". I think it's the best way to meet people. I also usually go alone and strike up conversations with locals. Other travelers often think I'm crazy (asking directions from a drunken guy on a train platform in the middle of a Russian forest), but people are usually very friendly and helpful, and they are curious as to what a "young" foreign girl is doing alone in their "remote" neighborhood speaking their own language.
A group of 2 or 3 may also be fine, as long as everyone has a basic understanding of the local language. It's a real hassle when you have to translate everything and you don't meet local people then (well, you do, but it's not the same). I often go with my best friend, but only because she is such a great friend and doesn't have the opportunity to go otherwise (she only speaks French). I find it frustrating even then to have to cut my conversations short so that she doesn't feel left out.
Otherwise, hum... Well, I do crazy stuff, go to remote place on my own, avoid crowds... Oh, and I hate discos and clubbing. A concert, a drink at the bar (soft only) is fine but that's all. I rise early to make most of the day.
